Texarkana College’s Community and Business Education Center is offering Virtual Kids’ College classes for Summer 2020.

The "Kids College' is in its 27th year and this year had to go online because of COVID-19 coronavirus concerns. The Virtual Kids College will begin July 6, students from the ages of 7-12 can participate in a month of virtual "Zoom" sessions practicing skills and creating real-life projects to challenge their minds in a fun, safe way. TC’s Executive Director of Business Development Mendy Sharp said:

“We are delighted to be able to serve the students of our community in a safe way and still give them the experiences of TC Kids’ College with hands-on activities that will challenge their mental, physical, and creative selves. “We have some outstanding instructors who are truly experts in their fields and have the training and experience to bring learning to life even in a virtual setting.”

Students who enroll can participate in multiple virtual sessions over the term. Each session will meet once a week for 45 minutes from July 6 until July 31. Students can select from five courses including Fun with Food, Hip-Hop Basics, Lyrical 101, Journalism, and Virtual Science. Each course is scheduled for a different time of the week, so students can take as many of the offerings as they want with parental consent.

Each Virtual Kids’ College class has a $50 registration fee and a corresponding supply list to ensure that each student has the materials and tools to make the most of their class. All the online courses require a submitted parental consent form for each child registered.

Registration for Virtual Kids’ College is available online here, or by calling the Community and Business Education Center directly at 903-823-3270. Seats for the courses are limited.
